When your head gets filled with too much theory – try art:
A SHORT TALK ON THE END
What is the difference between light and lighting? There is an etching called The Three Crosses by Rembrandt. It is a picture of the earth and the sky and Calvary. A moment rains down on them. The plate grows darker. Darker. Rembrandt wakens you just in time to see matter stumble out of its forms.

The word Calvary (lat. Calvaria) means “a skull”. Calvaria and the Gr. Kranion are equivalents for the original Golgotha. The crucifixion hill by Jerusalem was known in Latin as Calvariae Locus, in Greek as Κρανιου Τοπος (Kraniou Topos) and Gûlgaltâ in Aramaic. While all of these terms mean “place of [the] skull,” it is not clear whether they refer to a hill containing a pile of skulls, or to a geographic feature resembling a skull.
